New Report Finds Problems in US Anti-Obesity Efforts
Date:8/3/2013

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) August 03, 2013

A new report was released by the Institute of Medicine that casts a poor verdict on the current state of anti-obesity efforts in the United States in recent years. The report is described in an article entitled “U.S. Obesity-Prevention Efforts Fall Short: Report” on US News and World Report, which was published on August 3, 2013. The article identifies several problems with the current US government efforts to prevent obesity, particularly due to the fact that they are too erratic and not focused enough. Another issue that it identifies is the fact that there is too little national coordination of the various efforts that have been undertaken against the condition. The result, according to the article, is that the rate of obesity is alarmingly high in the United States.

The article quotes Dr. Alan Saber of the Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York as saying that the obesity problem in the United States is particularly serious, particularly among children. He identified the serious threats that the continuing problem of obesity would cause to the nation’s budgetary situation if the current epidemic were to continue unabated. Saber also said that the CDC estimates that the total cost of obesity five years ago in 2008 was about $147 billion. Such a figure would be a substantial burden on the nation’s economy and health care system. Saber also estimated that obesity costs every individual affected by it an additional $1429 in medical costs.

This report is certain to further increase the attention paid to the problem of obesity in the United States, and it could not be more timely. It comes only a short time after the American Medical Association decided that it would reclassify obesity as a diseases affecting millions of Americans, partly in the hope that this designation would encourage people to seek treatment for it.
